Uniworld is one of the most luxurious river cruise lines in existence, operating a fleet of 13 unique, opulent and lavish six-star river ships. The company was founded in 1976, becoming part of the Travel Corporation in 2004 – a group which also includes luxurious Red Carnation Hotel. The cruise line operates on the waters of Europe, Arica and Asia, and each Uniworld ship is inspired by its destination. Step into a Hapsburg palace on the SS Maria Theresa as you sail down the Danube, or feel like you’re staying in a French colonial mansion as you glide down the Mekong on SS Mekong Jewel. Uniworld cruises are costly, but are completely all-inclusive (including premium alcoholic beverages), and the line offers exclusive unique excursions, like a cocktail reception hosted by an Austrian princess and a private visit to her home.
S.S. La Venezia, ship details
The River Countess underwent a complete design renovation in 2020, debuting as the S.S. La Venezia to bring guests an enhanced luxury experience inspired by Northern Italy. The redesign of the S.S. La Venezia drew influence from the fine Fortuny fabrics displayed prominently onboard. Murano glass, gilded accents and artistic etched elements pay homage to popular Venetian aesthetics of the early 20th century, creating an onboard atmosphere that is at once elegant and nostalgic.Full ship details
